I plan on removing the rear panel and making appropriate size holes on a
mill

for USB connectors something like

I will be using a shielded connector, same with the RJ45 connector
http://www.l-com.com/ethernet-ecf-panel-mount-cat5e-rj45-jack-110-punchdown-style

only using L-Com's site as a reference, in no way promoting them.

In some of the industrial work I've done, I have used this type of
connector/housing http://www.te.com/catalog/feat/en/c/20122

If you don't care about stuff radiating from your USB and Ethernet
antennas, on the E just search "panel mount (USB,ethernet)"
